Over the last year I have found some of our newspaper headlines stupid. Yesterday, I posted an article about a women who had died while in jail.
The headline: Authorities ID women found died in county jail.
As you read the article you learn that she had been in jail for 11 days.
So here is my first questions, she had been in jail 11 days and they just now ID her??????? Possible, perhaps, but unlikely. (There were No other articles within the last 11 days about this jail and/or having a Jane Doe.)
Perhaps the headline should have been: Authorities release name of woman who died in county jail.
So I went searching on the world wide web and found a list of some other funny/stupid headlines and thought I would share them with you.
